Hello vintage audio collectors & fans;
This auction is for a pair of very rare, top-of-the-line vintage Pioneer HPM-150 speakers from their legendary Pioneer SPEC series. These speakers come directly from the Pioneer section of my famous vintage audio collection.
HPM-150 speakers are just the perfect match for the Pioneer SPEC-2, SPEC-4 power amplifiers & also their top integrated amplifiers such as SA-9800, SA-9500 II & SA-9900 & last but not least the A-27 from Pioneer's Series 20 line-up.
The overall cosmetics of the speakers are very, very good considering their some 33 years old age with only some normal signs of wear & usage & age related signs but again overall they are in very good to excellent condition with solid cabinets and grills with no holes or runs in them. The all important HPM-150 logos are also excellent are attached! Couple of the mid & tweeter drives are a bit pushed in but they work just fine & that is only cosmetic.
The famous, futuristic supertweeters, massice 16'' woofers & the glass tops are all excellent!
Sadly due to a recent freak audio accident with my Pioneer A-90 amplifier being hooked up to them, the crossovers very badly damaged & also the binding posts on the rear panels.
The silly thing happened when the little switch on the back of the amp was accidentally set at 4 ohms when it should have been set at 8 ohms and that cause excessive overheating & the crossovers & the binding posts on the back of the speakers were toast! The other speaker still have the cross over & the binding post intact but the ones from one of the speakers were just thrown out.
As a result of the above detailed situation the speakers are being sold sold ''AS IS'' to be fixed or to be used for their very hard-to-find parts & highly valuable parts!!
This certainly is a very rare opportunity to get them since only once in a blue moon you can buy whole HPM-150s for parts! Of course if you know your ways around speakers you can install your own crossovers & replace the missing binding post on one of them with even better quality ones & chances are that the speakers will sound even better!
Due to the massive size of the speakers & also their titanic weight, LOCAL PICK-UP ONLY please with payment in cash.
As a special bonus the buyer will also receive the nice scans of the color brochure & also last but not least the service manual for the speakers!
Very, very rarely these speakers are offered in Canada & the last pair on eBay recently sod for $1,500 US. To ship these monsters form the US after the S&H, customs & brokerage fees will cost well over $2,100 & of course if they get here in one piece that is! so you can get these at half price!
Don't miss this very rare chance & good luck!
Nice digital scans of the color brochure & also last but not least the service manual for the speakers!
